Learn More About Autism this World Autism Day!

Today is World Autism Day, and what better day to learn about Autism and how it is affecting hundreds of kids every day. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that limits one’s mental abilities to carry out normal day to day functions that we take for granted.

It affects the day-to-day development of the child. It causes difficulty in learning, especially learning languages as well as problems with verbal and non-verbal communication Problems with social skills Presence of unusual behaviours (like hand flapping, biting etc.). Moreover, Autism is known as a spectrum disorder, which means the severity and type of symptoms are different for every affected person.

In India, one in every 100 kids suffer from Autism and many times it goes undetected by parents for many years.

Autism isn’t curable, but through therapy and treatment, people affected with this condition can live a normal life, just like us. All they need is our love, support and guidance for a happy confident future.

Autistics can lead an independent life with pride and dignity if they’re given the opportunities they deserve. Here’s where our responsibility as a citizen or an organisation comes in. Supporting people suffering from Autism and giving employment to them can truly help them to lead a normal life, just like us, or support organisations that help Autistics to lead a better life with their challenges and make them ready for the world.

Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and Alyona Kapoor truly believe in helping people with autism and have been a part of Forum For Autism (FFA)- an NGO and charitable organization that creates awareness and supports kids affected with autism.

Having supported it for more than a decade, it is a cause and organization that is very close to their heart. To learn more about Autism and help support this noble cause, feel free to click on the link here
